Protolabs invests in HP’s advanced 3D printing systems

1 min read

Digital manufacturing service Protolabs has announced the further expansion of its additive manufacturing capabilities with two new HP Jet Fusion 5600 Series 3D printing systems.

The new investments underline the company's pioneering role in the world of additive manufacturing and positions it as one of the first in the EMEA region to have access to the advanced printing technology of these systems.

The HP Jet Fusion 5600 series systems are characterised by reliable, efficient, and scalable production – meaning Protolabs’ customers will now be able to obtain components and prototypes with more flexibility, as well as with higher quality and repeatability.

Optimised print modes, calibrations and excellently matched hardware components enable higher reproducibility of high-quality parts. The HP printers in this series not only guarantee the production of accurately fitting prototypes, but also robust final components.

In addition, the printers offer enhanced monitoring of the entire printing process resulting in significantly higher final product quality. Furthermore, the finished products have a more homogeneous surface, and the build lines are also barely visible.

Andrea Landoni, EMEA 3DP product manager at Protolabs, said: "In order to maintain our pioneering role within the industry, we have always prioritised the continual expansion of the machine park at our European 3DP Centre.

"This acquisition demonstrates that we are investing in our own capabilities, and underlines our commitment to providing our customers with the best possible support through outstanding quality and excellent products."

Fabian Schuster, application engineer at HP’s personalisation & 3D printing business, said: "To maintain our pursuit of excellence and quality while driving innovative changes in our lives, we're excited to provide Protolabs with HP's cutting-edge 3D printing technology.

"The fact that we supply the necessary technology for this will not change in the future – and neither will the fact that our end customers have a partner at their side in Protolabs who knows how to combine hands-on experience and expertise with this technology."
